West Brom boss Tony Pulis signs contract extension until 2019

The Egypt centre-back, who joined on loan from Al Ahly last month, headed in from close range just after the half-hour mark to ensure the home side were able to celebrate their head coach signing a one-year contract extension with three points.

The 59-year-old, who led West Brom to a 10th-place finish in the Premier League last season, was appointed in January 2015.

Pulis agreed terms to extend his stay with the club until 2019 on Friday, and it was back to business 24 hours later as West Brom continued the theme of the previous campaign by displaying trademark defensive steel coupled with set-piece prowess.

"Having spoken to John (Williams, the chairman) at great length over the summer, we know this club has a direction it needs to follow and we are determined to do that".

Pulis also pointed to the "improvement all across the club in recent seasons", which he stated as a necessity, in what he called, "such a tough, tough league".

"We gave them a lot to cheer about first half and we've got to make sure we continue to do that".

"Neither can we underestimate how hard that is".

"We had more shots, more crosses and more end product than Bournemouth".

"We must never take that for granted and continue to commit every ounce of our energy to keeping our club in the division every club in the country wants to be in". I expected us to have the possession that we did but I thought we would have been more creative with it.

There wasn't much to shout about for Eddie Howe's men who were lucky to escape with just the one-goal defeat while Tony Pulis and his side can be satisfied with a good performance on the opening weekend of the new season.
